Мажьтесь солнцезащитными кремами!

В последние дни мне часто попадается речь Курта Воннегута в Массачусетском технологическом институте 6 июня 1997 года. Мистер Воннегут – американский писатель-сатирик, один из наиболее значимых писателей ХХ века действительно оканчивал (как и его отец), Массачусетский технологический институт, однако данную лекцию не читал. Летом того же 1997 года, в котором о лекции “про солнцезащитный крем” Воннегуту рассказывали его друзья и юристы, о ней писали женские журналы, журналист Chicago Tribune Мэри Шмич провела расследование и выяснила, что спикером в день 6 июня в институте выступал Кофи Аннан. А сам писатель про крем не говорил ни слова. “Должен признать, это очень остроумные высказывания. Но остроумие это – не мое”, – через недели звонков признал писатель.

Мажьтесь солнцезащитными кремами!

Кто бы ни сказал эти слова, цитаты вот уже 19 лет волнуют многих. Курта не стало в 2007, и одной из главных ЕГО цитат последних лет была “люди нуждаются в хорошей лжи, по­то­му что кру­гом слиш­ком мно­го пло­хой”. Ниже – та самая “лекция“, не Крута Воннегута, но которая запоминается.

Уважаемые выпускники, мажьтесь солнцезащитными кремами!

Если бы я мог дать вам только один совет на будущее, он был бы как раз про солнцезащитные кремы. Выгода их использования была доказана учеными, в то время как остальные мои рекомендации не имеют более надежной основы, чем собственным путаный опыт, эти советы я вам сейчас изложу.

  • Наслаждайтесь силой и красотой своей юности, пока жизнь вам не нравится, она проходит. Поверьте мне, через 20 лет вы посмотрите на свои фотографии и вспомните с чувством, которое вы сейчас не можете понять. Сколько возможностей было открыто перед вами, и как же сказочно вы на самом деле выглядели. Вы не так много весите, как вам кажется.

  • Не беспокойтесь о будущем. Или хорошо, беспокойтесь, но знайте, что эти беспокойства так же эффективны, как попытка решить алгебраическое уравнение с помощью пережевывания жевательной резинки. Реальными неприятностями в вашей жизни случаются события, которые никогда не трогали ваш беспокойный ум, такие, например, что застают вас врасплох в четыре часа вечера, в какой-нибудь обычный вторник.
  • Ежедневно делайте что-нибудь из того, что вас пугает.
  • Относитесь бережно к сердцам других людей. Не миритесь с теми, кто равнодушен к вашему сердцу.

Мажьтесь солнцезащитными кремами!

  • Наслаждайтесь своим телом, используйте его, как только можете, и не бойтесь того, что другие люди думают об этом. Тело — это самый прекрасный инструмент, которым вы когда-либо будете обладать.
  • Не тратьте время на зависть, иногда вы впереди, иногда позади, гонка длинна, и, в конце концов, вы ее ведете только с самим собой.
  • Не чувствуйте себя виноватым, если не знаете, что вы хотите делать с вашей жизнью. Самые интересные люди из тех, кого я знаю, понятия не имели в 22 года, как они хотят прожить свою жизнь, причем некоторые из наиболее интересных мне знакомых сорокалетних не знают до сих пор.
  • Потребляйте кальций. Бережно относитесь к своим коленям, вам их будет не хватать, когда они выйдут из строя.
  • Может быть, вы вступите в брак, может быть, нет. Может быть, у вас будут дети, может быть, нет. Может быть, вы разведетесь в сорок, а может быть, вы будете отплясывать танец маленьких утят на семьдесят пятой годовщине своей свадьбы. Что бы вы ни делали, не хвалите себя слишком много, но и не ругайте тоже. Ваш выбор, как и у всех, наполовину во власти случая.
  • Прилагайте все усилия, чтобы преодолеть разрывы в географии и в жизни, потому что чем старше вы становитесь, тем больше вам нужны будут люди, которых вы знали, когда были молоды.
  • Поживите немного в Нью-Йорке, но покиньте ее, прежде чем она сделает вас твердым. Поживите на острове Бали, но покиньте его, прежде чем он сделает вас мягким. И, вообще, путешествуйте.

Мажьтесь солнцезащитными кремами!

  • Примите несколько неизбежных истин: цены будут расти, политики будут изменять своим женам. Вы тоже будете стареть, и, когда состаритесь, вы будете фантазировать, что когда вы были молоды, цены были разумными, политики были благородными и дети уважали своих стариков.
  • Кстати, уважайте своих стариков, вы никогда не знаете, когда они уйдут навсегда.
  • Не рассчитывайте, что кто-нибудь будет обеспечивать вас. Может быть, у вас есть свой инвестиционный фонд, может быть, у вас есть богатый супруг или супруга, но вы никогда не знаете, когда каждый из них может покинуть вас.
  • Все мы когда-нибудь уйдем, но важно продержаться до конца, во что-то веря. В этом самая большая трудность, потому что кажется, что нет ни черта такого, во что действительно стоило бы верить.
  • Будьте осторожны и терпеливы с теми, кто вам их дает, совет — это форма ностальгии, это способ выуживания прошлого из мусорной кучи, закрашивание свежими красками нелицеприятных моментов и переработки его в нечто более дорогое, чем оно было. Но то, что солнцезащитные кремы действительно спасают вашу кожу от ожогов, доказано учеными, так что смело мажьтесь.
